How To Use Walgreens Register Rewards

Several nights this week in coupon class I have listened to my co-teacher Brandy explain a great deal at Walgreens right now.  I thought the deal was good enough to merit a mention to those of you who don’t have the opportunity to learn from her wisdom.

This week at Walgreens there are two items you can snag great deals on.  Here is the ideal transaction scenario:

Transaction #1: Colgate Toothpaste (4 oz Total Gum Defense or Total Advanced) $2.99
Pay $2.99 Out of Pocket (plus tax)
Get $2.99 in Register Rewards to use on your next transaction

Transaction #2: Baby Magic Lotion or Hair & Body Wash $3.00
Give them your $2.99 Register Rewards from the toothpaste
Pay $.01 (plus tax)
Get $3.00 in Register Rewards to use on your next transaction

Transaction #3: Colgate Toothpaste $2.99
Grab an inexpensive filler item (we will say it costs $.50)
Give them your $3.00 in Register Rewards from Baby Magic Lotion or Hair & Body Wash
Pay $.49 (plus tax)
Get $2.99 in Register Rewards

Do you see the pattern? You can do this multiple times as long as you do different transaction.  Remember toothpaste expires so don’t clear the store out!

This is a great example of how you can use Walgreens to save some big money!

    HI! Say if I have a coupon for the products that have rewards, do I get the full amount of the reward?

    Not a bad trip at all! Now that you have two of those razors you don’t have to buy them again until they become free. When you first start your stockpile you are going to pay a little bit for things- did you have the coupon for the razors from the paper last Sunday?

    Your next trip you shouldn’t spend much cash- just buy things that earn Up Rewards with your Up Rewards!

    I went to Rite Aid and did the same senerio. I had them scan all items with UP rewards first. I had coupons for a lot of them also. When it was all said and done, I paid $22 out of pocket. Then on my receipt was $11 in UP rewards. In my basket was NON UP rewards items with coupons some Buy One Get one Free and some Buy One get One 50%. When it was all said and done, after scanning my UP rewards and coupons, I paid .59c. Did I do the right thing? All my husband sees is I paid $22. But I got $11 cash back and got the balance free. So I actually paid $11 out of pocket. The Fushion Razors, $9.99 each retail, I got 2, well really everything else was free. I just wanted to ease my mind I got a good deal. What do you think?
